The brain is constantly predicting the future. In case of an incorrect prediction, a certain process is triggered in the brain. This electric brain response, mismatch negativity, was discovered at the University of Helsinki 40 years ago. Now, it is one of the brain’s most investigated mechanisms, and provides information on, for example, dyslexia, autism, and memory loss.
